It’s unbelievable that months can go by since I blogged my last diary entry. Time seems to pass so quickly, and finding a moment to write these posts is like gold dust. Having said that, there are certainly no complaints with how my life is shaping up at the moment. I’m writing this new blog post, this ‘next chapter’, with some very pleasing news I’d like to share.
In my last post, I alluded to change being on the horizon and a newfound direction in terms of my future career. I’m pleased to say that this has happened. Shortly I’ll be starting a new job at Time Inc UK (formerly IPC Media), I’ll be a CRM (customer relationship marketing) Executive and I cannot wait. It feels like I’ve waited a lifetime when in reality it has only been months. I feel so blessed to be in the position I’m in, where I’ve gained experience and developed skills, which ultimately has led me to this newfound direction.
I found a brilliant quote on Twitter this week - “Direction is so much more important than speed. Many are going nowhere fast.” At times I have been guilty of impatience and wanting time to speed up, but I’m now learning that patience pays off. Sometimes we have to go through the motions to achieve direction. It all takes time.
For me, my time is spent on working towards my ambitions - the goal post is always moving. I’ve discovered that my relentless feeling of wanting to get ‘there’ is ever changing; because where I wanted to get to six months ago, I’m there now. It’s a constant motivator and I cannot wait to see where this new chapter will take me. The only way is up.
